AmbioPharm Inc. Expands Manufacturing Campus in North Augusta, South Carolina

07/18/2017
AmbioPharm Inc., a full-service peptide and biopharmaceutical manufacturing company, is expanding its existing manufacturing hub in Aiken County, South Carolina. The expansion is projected to bring $18 million of new capital investment and lead to the creation of 100 jobs over the next five years.

Located at 1024 Dittman Court in North Augusta, South Carolina, AmbioPharm will be constructing two additional freestanding buildings, totaling 50,000 square feet, and purchasing additional equipment. Hiring for the new positions is projected to begin in the second quarter of 2018.

AmbioPharm started its business in South Carolina in 2007 by establishing its company headquarters and downstream manufacturing operations in a 10,000-square-foot facility in the North Augusta Industrial Park. That same year, API also opened its Shanghai, China operations, which focuses on the synthesis, as well as the research and development, of pharmaceutical products. In 2014 and 2015, the company made major facility expansions to its Aiken County operations.

As an incentive, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development has approved job development credits related to this project.

“AmbioPharm continues to be grateful for the support that it receives from the state of South Carolina. Without this support, our business could not grow at the accelerated pace that our customers have come to expect,” said AmbioPharm, Inc. CFO Stephen Kiel.

“South Carolina’s advanced manufacturing industry has put our state on the map, and AmbioPharm’s latest expansion is a testament to that. By growing its already significant operations in our state, AmbioPharm is making a statement that South Carolina, with our pro-business environment and highly-skilled workforce, is ‘Just right’ for business,” Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt said.

“An expansion by one of our existing industries is a reason to celebrate, and we want to thank AmbioPharm for this great news! Aiken County is a better place because of companies like AmbioPharm. Aiken County Council appreciates the partnership we have with this company and will continue to work closely with them to foster even more growth,” Aiken County Council Chairman Andrew Siders said.
